Midvale Senior Center
Stallings Construction built the LEED Midvale Senior Center at 7550 S. Main which spans 20,000 square feet, expanding capacity from 175 to 800 visitors. This project has earned multiple awards: UC&D’s “2015 Outstanding Project”, AIA Utah’s “Award Winners”, Utah Masonry’s “2016 Excellence in Masonry Design”, and Urban Design’s “Utah’s 2017 Merit Award”.
Becky Capp, Director for Salt Lake County Aging & Adult Services, said the copper in the new center is just one way it ties into the town’s rich history. “We’ve got copper from the copper mine, we’ve got the silo from, you know, we used to have sugar beets that grew all around here, so we’ve really tried to incorporate the history of Midvale into the center,” Capp said.
The main concept behind a senior center is to keep people active as they age, so it has plenty to offer.
